Emergency Shelter – 24-hour Hotline 732.249.4504 Toll-free 833.249.4504
Women Aware operates the only domestic violence emergency shelter in Middlesex County. Our 24-bed facility is staffed 24-hours/day, 365 days/year by multilingual case workers. Clients residing in our shelter receive much more than a bed for the night. Residents speak of our shelter as a welcoming “home” environment. Residents cook as a community in a fully equipped kitchen, and children play after school in the backyard and play room. Residents with hearing, visual, or mobility impairments move around our ADA-compliant shelter with ease. Moreover, because victims often arrive with few possessions, we provide a fully stocked food and baby pantry, new clothing, clean linens, toiletries and school supplies, toys, and books for children.
Permanent Supportive Housing
A unique component of Women Aware’s residential program is permanent supportive housing (PSH). PSH opened in 2013 as the first long-term housing facility in New Jersey specifically for victims of domestic violence. Our program offers a unique opportunity for victims to work towards their long-term goals while having access to secure housing they could not otherwise afford.
Housing Navigation Program
Women Aware recently added a Housing Navigation Program to its services. This program offers Victims of Crime safe housing options, including safe housing and rental assistance, victim-related compensation and an address confidentiality program.
